HELP! Client black screen (loading params, java nullnull)

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

hi, im coming back to rs and botting after just over a year. I cannot for the life of me get it to load.

iv got a fresh laptop and had to install java jdk/jre 8 32bit.

when loading the tribot I click on start client and its a black screen for ages which says 'Loading client params'

eventually it will change to 'Downloading Jar nullnull'

im on windows 10


can someone help me fix this please?

I can get the official osrs client to load and play.


in the little log thing that runs while the client is trying to load I get this as the first red line

'java.net.socketexception: address family not supported by protocol family: connect

Looks to me like its trying to connect over IPv6 instead of IPv4, reinstalling java might do it, but i think you can also run this from a command line.

setx _JAVA_OPTIONS -Djava.net.preferIPv4Stack=true

if you are unsure where to type that, open Start, type CMD and hit enter. A black box will appear and you can paste the above line by right clicking somewhere and clicking paste.

      Important: Since the downloadable RS client uses Java 7, it will no longer be compatible with Looking Glass. To make up for this, we will add support for using other clients such as RuneLite (at a later date).

      This change was necessary to allow us to use Java 8 syntax. It also paves the way for Java 9/10/11 support.
